I started Acuity Path in March 2020.  Before then, I did other things, but I started my accountability groups and coaching in March 2020. 

I launched my website and started my blog at the same time.  In April 2020, I posted a blog called “Can I get tougher in just 2 minutes a day?”  https://acuitypath.ca/blog/can-i-get-tougher-in-just-2-minutes-a-day/


In the blog, I shared how I came across an article on Indigo from an author I like: Neil Pasricha. 


In the article, he shares his two-minute morning practice. A practice that he believes is an excellent way to start your day.  

Each morning he answers these three questions:   

I will let go of …

I am grateful for…

I will focus on …

You can read the original blog or his article to get more info on those three questions.  

I did try this two-minute morning for some time  

Today, I start each day with these questions:

Overall, I liked the two-minute morning.  I journal in the morning, so I added these questions to my morning journaling practice.  

However, like everything I do, I am constantly checking in with what works, what doesn’t, what to do I want to stop doing or change, and what do I want to keep doing or start?

Eventually, I stopped doing the two-minute morning in my morning journal.  I wanted at least the I will focus on … in front of me through the day.  So I made a change.    

Each morning, after I’ve completed my victory morning routine and I’m ready to start my work day, I sit down with my bullet journal, and the first question I ask is:   What do I need to let go of?  This is a variation of Neil’s “I will let go of…”.  

I then ask:  What are my intentions for the day?  A variation of Neil’s “I will focus on….”

I then identify the top three things that will make my day successful if they are completed.  

I start each day with these three things.  I do this before I start any meeting and before I start any other work. 

At the end of the day, I finish with three questions.  One of those questions is what am I grateful for.  

I moved this question to the end of the day because I found that sometimes I needed a pick me up at the end of the day, and gratitude is one way to pick me up.  

What do you think of the changes I made? 

Have you tried the Two-Minute morning? 

Will you try either? 

It’s a new day, fresh start, fresh energy, new opportunties. Get your mind right, be thankful, be positive and start your day right.
